Vegetable Lasagna - Speciality Dishes
Serves: 4
Preparation Time: 45 Minutes
Lasagna is a wide and flat type of pasta and possibly one of its oldest shapes. Though Lasagna is prepared in various combinations such as with cheese only or with beef and cheese or with vegetables and cheese; the recipe being presented here is Indian adaption of this popular Italian dish. My family and friends have relished this dish and I hope you will enjoy it too.

Pour some pasta sauce on top of it. Repeat layers. Cover last layer with remaining mixture.
